Similar to semester 1 the students will work on themes during semester 2. As the other themes, the contents of this theme are depending on what is going on in the business at the time.

Semester 3: The final semester is made up of an internship and bachelor project. The internship allows you to try out the theory and methodologies that you have learnt through practical solving of tasks in a sport event or leisure company or organisation in Denmark or abroad. This is your opportunity for further immersion into a subject before you finalise your education with your bachelor project.

Similar to the internship, the bachelor project is your chance to show your achieved competencies in methodology, analysis and theory related to a sport event and leisure company or organisation in Denmark or abroad.
